We love the sunshine, be it on the beach or on the ski slopes. We have fun and feel good. And we protect ourselves. The sun protection factor (SPF) is one of the things that determines the effectiveness of a sun cream. NIVEA sun protection products protect the skin from UV rays, preventing us from sunburn and free radicals. As wonderful as sunbathing is, everyone is sensitive to sunlight in one way or another. There are different skin types depending on the colour of our skin, hair and eyes. As fair skin needs to have greater protection from the sun than darker skin, there is a suitable sun protection factor for every skin type.
Important to know: The SPF that is suitable for our own skin type is determined by the amount of time the skin can protect itself. This is the period for which the skin can be exposed to the sun without getting sunburn. Depending on your skin type, location and the time of year, this is 5 to 30 minutes on average.
